WSBK » Toseland would 'definitely' return to MotoGP

Having been overlooked for a potential MotoGP comeback in-place of Colin Edwards at his old team Tech 3 should the American have taken the injured Valentino Rossi's ride at FIAT Yamaha, double WSBK Champion James Toseland insists never-say-never regarding an eventual return

awwww Russell, this is pure Crash GOLD!

It has everything to light up the posts - JT saying he would return to GPs, him being whipped by Colin, Ben moving to the team and making Edwards look "rather ordinary", JT admitting Yamaha didn't look his way when Val got hurt, Cal getting the "supposed" offer that he wish he had gotten, etc

The Crash boys will be all over this!

I reckon with Moto GP to run 1000cc engines, JT would be a good choice. I know alot of people think he's no good, but he only had two years. Fair enough, last year was dreadfull, especially when you compare it to his rookie year, but lets face it, their are a good few riders in Moto GP who have under-performed for years, yet they still have regular rides. I know money/sponsorship is a factor, but if Dorna are so keen to have a british rider in the championship, then surely James should have been on a bike this year. I mean, look at Colin this year. He's a brilliant rider, but is finishing in similar positions to those of JT last year. Bet he still has a ride next year though.

If JT cannot even beat half the superbike field whilst on the winning bike and oodles of experience, who in their right mind would bring him into MotoGP. About the only candidate in Superbikes worthy of a MotoGP ride is Haslam. I wish you luck JT, you seem like a nice chap, but if you want to be considered for a MotoGP ride back you need to be consistently winning races in Spies-like fashion. Heck, you don't even have ducati to contend with this season, you should/need to be winning in a convincing manner.

In my opinion, he's a better rider than Kallio, and tries harder than Edwards, but the grid is too small and only factory bikes are allowed to win, so his chances are really limited.
